Information

The local Anangu request that visitors not climb the rock, partly due to the path crossing an important dreaming track, and also a sense of responsibility for the safety of visitors to their land, however there is no legislation to ban climbing except during extreme weather conditions as detailed below.

Climbing Uluru is an exhilarating feat and those that make it to the summit are reward with sensational views and also a plaque as pictured here.

For safety reasons the climb will be closed under certain circumstances.

Heat - closed at 8:00am if the forecast maximum temperature for Yulara is 36 degrees centigrade or more;
Wind - closed if the estimated wind speed at 2500ft is 25 knots or more;
Storms - closed if there is any storm activity between NW and SW closer than 50km to Uluru;
Rain - closed if there is a greater than 20% chance of rain in the next 3 hours;

Darkness - closed from half an hour after sunset to half an hour before sunrise;
Rescue - closed during all rescue operations on Uluru.
Cultural Reasons - closed upon request from Traditional Owners following a death or due to a cultural event or ceremony occurring.

The primary reasons for the closure of the climb are temperature and wind conditions during the Australian summer months.
